for depreciation for use of the medallions? i realize that it is hopefully something that will never come to pass. but if we did have to repurchase a huge lot of medallions it would be very expensive. to give somebody the original purchase price when they had the use of the medallion for a long time. rather clear obligation is the board passes this item and if we enter into the lender agreement it would be to provide the purchase price regardless of what you might call the current market value or depreciation. this would only arise if you said these once transferable medallions that you bought it but you can't sell it. a lesser step if the board were to pull back on this taxi medallion program would be to say we are not going to sell anymore. but the ones that had been sold could be sold. under those circumstances you would not incur this liability. if we went forward with medallion sales we might sell 20 or 30 medallions over the course of 30 days. they could say we are not going to sell any more medallions. so long as they maintain transferable. >> it would be up to the board. it is still withi

be used to try and direct it to the people who are having the problems of alcohol abuse and try to help educate them. i think that would be a much better use of resources than this. i'm not crazy about the program the way it's been presented. i'm not sure it's the right approach. vice president clyde: like commissionero brien is saying, i think we need to have an outreach component to the people that are creating these fees for the city, with their use of medical services. it just seems like otherwise we're just going to have this going up every year, the cost of medical bills is going to go up and i don't see anything here to mitigate the number of people that are using facilities. >> just a point of clarification. with the nexus study, it's set the dollar amount to which then the fee is adjusted to collect that dollar amount for five years, at the end of five years the board of supervisers can direct the controller to do another nexus study, which -- that nexus study then can possibly include the nonalcohol-related cost impacts , to increase the fee. and/or make the adjustment, you kn

the tide, the 100 feet where it comes in and out. i think the question for us to look at here, if you want to add another two weeks to cover public comment, what is dimp with this e.i.r. versus other e.i.r.'s we have done in the city? i didn't hear any public testimony that has led me to believe that we need to -- any additional information. whether board member ebber ling -- e -- elberling is right or not with the church, i don't remember any time that we have to address the-sably issues in any other e.i.r.'s. i don't disagree maybe we should look at faith-based facilities being there, but that's -- the treasure island plan itself, they can negotiate some sort of rental there, that's a separate document. regarding the e.i.r. with the transportation and the environment and some of the alternatives, again i'm going back to the role of the e.i.r., have we looked at the alternatives? if we looked -- i think we have adequately looked at the alternatives. we know we have -- there's mitigation issues. but going back again, the public should understand, this is a document to look. how do we look
